Chronic inflammation increases with aging, and it is linked to heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and cancer, as well as frailty and disability. The NIA is offering new funding for research on chronic inflammation. If you study inflammation, please read about this grant opportunity and consider applying.
“We are offering this funding opportunity to encourage research on the effect of chronic low-grade inflammation on functional outcomes in older people,” says Dr. Barbara Radziszewska, Program Officer in the Clinical Trials Branch of the Division of Geriatrics and Clinical Gerontology. The new project is being offered through the U01 mechanism, and more information about that mechanism is available in the blog post. The deadline for the letter of intent is September 8, 2014.
